What is a Myers Cocktail IV Drip & Why everyone should get

 

The Myers intravenous vitamin infusion which enhances immune system, reduces fatigue, helps with seasonal allergies, reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia and asthma.

The Myers’ Cocktail is named for the late John Myers, M.D., a Maryland physician who used intravenous injections of nutrients to treat many chronic conditions. Currently, the nutrient cocktail has been popularized by Alan Gaby, M.D., a physician who often writes about nutrition in medicine.

By getting the vitamins directly into your bloodstream - a combination of magnesium, calcium, B & Vitamin C  - the nutrients are thereby “coaxed” into the cells, and frequently into the mitochondria where they are going to be most effective & active. This temporary boost frequently “kick-starts” the cells! And in turn energy is produced more efficiently in them.

Speaking of energy - some patients report feeling an energy boost lasting days or even weeks!! And let's be real which one of us doesn't need more energy- especially now that school - and class- are back in session! Maximum benefits of the myers are experienced after a few sessions over the course of 4 weeks in most cases.

The Myers cocktail has been purported based on anectodal evidence and studies to be GOOD FOR EVERYONE(theres always an exception to this rule that is where our NP's come in) but specifically aim to alleviate symptoms tied to immune system deficiencies, fatigue, seasonal allergies, menopause, the monthly visitor for us women, fibromyalgia and asthma.

Our IVs may help boost your love life, read on how!

  

There are many different libido-enhancing formulas or supplements on the market. But one of the most formidable boosts to your dating&love life can be found in our Myers IV containing magnesium, calcium, various B vitamins and vitamin C that is claimed to be beneficial for a broad range of conditions such as ED, low sex drive&energy and women monthly symptoms.
 

Magnesium makes it more difficult for testosterone to latch onto proteins in the body. As a result, testosterone is distributed in the blood, helping to kick up your sex drive. It can also boost your libido by helping you get a good night’s sleep.
 

Vitamin C increases circulation and gives you more energy by fueling your adrenal glands, maintaining healthy blood vessels as well as improving blood flow. Blood flow affects your erectile function, so vitamin C may help sexual function. Vitamin C can't be stored in the body, so you need to eat enough foods rich in it - or take supplements but as some of our other blogs have explored - can be inefficient.
Good sources of vitamin C include oranges and orange juice, red and green peppers and strawberries and blackcurrants, broccoli, brussels sprouts and potatoes. Good nutrition should always be practiced but getting a little boost from us is a great idea as well!
 

Cassandra Barns, nutritionist, said: "Vitamin C could help with erectile dysfunction by improving blood flow to the genitals.
one of the nutrients needed to help the body produce a natural chemical called nitric oxide that dilates blood vessels, encouraging blood flow. Adults need 40mg of vitamin C a day - which people should be able to get from their diet but let's be honest were not always on top of our nutrition game.
One of our knowledgeable NPs will be able to diagnose if you're a good candidate for a high dose of Vitamin C.
 

Vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, is one of eight B vitamins, all of which help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to produce energy. B5 specifically assists in the production of sex and stress-related hormones. Bring on the B5!
 

"Loss of libido can be associated with B vitamin deficiency, which affects energy in general,” says Taz Bhatia, an integrative medical expert in Atlanta, who goes by Dr. Taz.
